The day Wes was diagnosed with bladder cancer. First you think - well, you don't know what to think.
When we made plans in the past it has been with the attitude of "if this is God's will". One of Wes' favorite passages of scripture is Proverbs 3:5-6 "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight."
Waiting is the hardest part. Waiting for the results of a biopsy. Waiting for the doctor's recommendation. Waiting for the day of surgery. Waiting to see how well you recover. Waiting to stop thinking about it at least every minute of every day.
The outlook is good. Surgery is scheduled - the tumor will be removed - he will have future monitoring but it is realistic that this will take care of it. Of course, to know that we have to wait.
